Piping at latex clothing
Piping can give an extra touch to a latex garment. Just like with regular textile clothing, you can also apply this in latex clothing.
Sometimes it is useful to use plain cotton cord and sometimes elastic. If you are going to apply piping to a piece in latex clothing that is very stressed, elastic cord is handy.
In the example below we show 2 methods with different end results. Through the first method you make a piping band for a piece of latex. Via the second method, the piping band is placed between two pattern pieces, for example in a seam of a shirt, a seam, jeans or between the cups of a bra or a corset.
You need one strip of latex and cord in the desired length. The cord should be slightly shorter than the latex, so that the cord is trapped.
Obviously, apply thinner and glue. Let it dry. And then double fold the latex. Rub the edges firmly firmly at the transition to the cord (with the side of a cutting ruler that goes perfectly!). You can choose to also lubricate the cord with glue, but if you place it tight enough then that is not necessary.
If you DO NOT make the cord shorter than the latex, it will stick out. The result will be that the cord starts to fray and you do not want that. Therefore, always cut the cord slightly shorter than the latex.
And when the piping tape is ready, you can stick it under a latex cartridge part.
You need two strips of latex in the same size and cord in the desired length. The cord should be slightly shorter than the latex, so that the cord is trapped.
Of course first again thinner and glue on the latex (both strips of latex). Then place the cord in the middle of a strip. The other strip is now glued over everything. Make sure that the latex comes against the cord on both sides of the cord. So first rub the cord neatly on one side, then rub the latex over the cord and then on the other side.
When everything is put together, you can use the back of a cutting ruler to rub the transition back and forth so that the cord is tightly locked.
Then you can stick other pieces of latex on both sides.
